    Thanks for this - I actually spent yesterday installing my copy of Lightroom 3 that has been lying around for ages (came free with my GF3), importing photos and playing around with a couple of raw files.

    To my untrained eye, CyberLink PhotoDirector seems quite similar to Lightroom - albeit a slightly less intimidating version. Without really knowing what I am doing I also had a go with CyberLink PhotoDirector and a couple of raw files and using the 'hold and click to see original' button even my amateur efforts pp seem to have improved my original photos - giving them a bit more 'pop'. :)

    Is it free to download (and use permanently) for 98 days or is it a 98 day free trial? Looks like it might be the former - in which case excellent! :smile:

    Anyone got a link to a good 'complete beginners guide to post processing' /Lightroom video or pdf? I ordered a couple of bargain books from amazon marketplace earlier, but I am impatient to get started. ;)

    Curiously, today the link no longer directs you to the same site as yesterday. Also, I downloaded the software yesterday, and tried it today, but was required to supply a serial number...free?????

    Yes, for some reason the link goes to the latest (not free) version today (v4). When I downloaded the software yesterday (v2) I got a unique serial number from the same page as the download and it was also emailed to me.

    Wow! I really like it. I think I'll enjoy this. I have only spent a few minutes with it so far.

    For those who installed this, the one given for free is the 2011 version. Will it work with the newer m4/3 raw files ?

    Unless this is dramatically better than LR is some way, I don't think I'm going to make the investment in learning new software, developing a new workflow, etc. I am interested in hearing what people think of it, though.
